It’s no secret that Taylor Swift has had her trouble with guys, but when will the right guy finally come along? Swift was spotted out again over the weekend with tour mate Ed Sheeran, starting another rumor the two musicians are dating.

Whether the two are dating, or they’re just friends, maybe he's exactly what she needs. Here are the reasons:

1

He's normal

Sheeran was raised in a small town in England, and moved to London in 2008 to pursue his dreams. He later caught the attention of Jamie Foxx and Elton John.

He's a songwriter

Sheeran was recognized for his music and continues to write songs for himself, as well as some of the biggest musicians in the industry. Swift also got famous by following her dreams and sharing her music.

Swift tends to date men way older or boys way younger than her. Sheeran is at least close to her age, just over a year younger than Swift.

Styles broke Swift's heart not once, but twice (the first time resulting in the song "Trouble"). Although, ironically, Sheeran has written numerous songs for One Direction, proving his staying power.

He's not John Mayer

It looks like Mayer may have finally met his match in Katy Perry, but his past relationship with Swift ended in some not-so-nice songs, possibly from both sides.

He's not Conor Kennedy

While it seems that Swift would have loved the Kennedy name, it doesn’t seem she could truly be with anyone who didn’t make his own way in the world.
